Old VIZIO Is Back With New VIZIO SmartCast P-Series (With Apps)

VIZIO realized that it made a HUGE, gigantic mistake by removing apps from its TVs after being purchased by LeEco last year. So, the company did the right thing by adding them back into its new VIZIO SmartCast P-Series Ultra HD HDR XLED Pro Display collection. Powered by a full-array local dimming LED-based backlight system and XHDR Pro with Dolby Vision with HDR10 content support, the 2017 P-Series is all about Apps and 4K.

Calling built-in apps SmartCast TV, it will enable users to browse content and a curated list of apps directly on the screen with the included remote (no separate LeEco or VIZIO box required). And, of course, there’s a SmartCast Mobile app available for download for iOS and Android that allows you to control the TV and apps.

The all-new VIZIO SmartCast P-Series Ultra HD HDR XLED Pro Display lineup starts at $1,299.99 for the 55″ class size and is available now at — in other words, they’re still selling direct and NOT through integrators. But, if you want to see them, go here.
